The Nativity of Christ, represented in the traditional Byzantine manner: the child and his mother appear in a cave with ox and ass giving homage; angels praise God and announce the birth to a shepherd; Joseph receives a warning in his dream.
Juliet Venter paints Christian icons and whimsical miniature illuminations using the traditional techniques of medieval art: egg tempera, natural pigments and gold leaf on true gesso. Her work is much appreciated for its jewel-like colours, fine detail and unsentimental aesthetic. Her paintings have been bought by clients all over the UK and Europe, USA, New Zealand and South Africa. Her numerous private commissions include birthday, baptism, confirmation, wedding & anniversary, retirement and ordination gifts.
Juliet's distinctive work can be viewed at her on-line gallery: www.juliet-icons.co.uk. Here on Fine Art America you can purchase prints and greetings cards featuring some of her most popular pieces.
